PCBs / Mercury Training
This two-hour class teaches participants how to inspect buildings and facilities for PCBs and PCB spills associated with fluorescent light fixtures and for mercury-containing fluorescent lamp tubes. It also provides an overview of PCB and mercury health effects, environmental laws, and cleanup and disposal regulations. A four-hour version of the class provides hands-on training in PCB cleanup practices, safe handling techniques, personal protection equipment (PPE), disposal manifesting, and other crucial skills. Both training classes comply with EPA regulations in 40 CFR 761 and OSHA regulations in 29 CFR 1910.
